Pennsylvanians have been eagerly waiting for the launch of online poker in the state and while there is no specific launch date for the vertical, a debut is drawing nearer and nearer. There are, of course, a number of great offerings that are currently available to gamers in the state but none of them have much appeal to diehard online poker fans. Fortunately, the vertical is already showing signs of prosperity even prior to its launch especially considering the fact that the industry is set to include popular gaming operators such as PokerStars.

Now, PokerStars is perhaps the most notable online gaming operator that has had its sights set on the Keystone State’s online gambling market. This is not surprising at all since Pennsylvania is one of the biggest gaming markets in the United States which makes it very lucrative for a vast range of gambling-related businesses.

That said, PokerStars definitely has some huge plans for the state’s gambling industry and these plans include a number of amazing tournament offerings. As you will see, with most of the offerings, the renowned online poker room intends to closely follow the branded tournaments format it has in place in New Jersey. There will be some slight but very significant changes to ensure that the offerings align with the nascent online gaming market in Pennsylvania.

Bigger Guarantees on the Way

Pennsylvania which boasts of a population of about 13 million people is one of the most populous states in the United States. As such, it is anticipated that the guarantees that will be offered for the PokerStars Multi-table Tournaments (MTTs) will be much higher than what the poker operator has been offering in states like New Jersey where it has been operating.

In addition to the bigger guarantees, it is expected that the operator will offer less expensive buy-ins not just as a means to effectively compete against other operators but also as a way of attracting more players who are looking for value.

Sunday Majors to Feature

Since online poker went mainstream, Sundays have always been the biggest day of the week for online poker tournaments and this is set to be the case when PokerStars debuts its online poker operation in Pennsylvania. In fact, it appears that PokerStars has plans for up to five Sunday majors.

 These five Sunday major tournaments reportedly feature a combined $57,500 in guaranteed prize pools. However, if things turn out well it will not be surprising if additional tournaments are added and the prize pools increased.

All in all, online poker players and enthusiasts have a lot of good things to look forward to once the vertical finally goes live. With such great offerings on the pipeline, there is not much else that they could ask for. Maybe, maybe not.
